America needs to get to the bottom of Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
There are still Americans who need to be rescued.
Ron DeSantis slammed Joe Biden with six question about Afghanistan.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is demanding answers from Democrat President Joe Biden.
He wrote a letter on Monday asking the Biden administration to share information with Florida and how it impacts them.
“As President Biden’s self-imposed August 31, 2021, evacuation deadline approaches and the situation rapidly deteriorates, the continued lack of information sharing is unacceptable,” DeSantis wrote. “The crisis in Afghanistan is of President Biden’ s own making, yet the consequences extend beyond the borders of Afghanistan and into the United States.”
In particular DeSantis had six questions for Biden that needed to be immediately answered:
- How many Floridians remain in Afghanistan?
- What is the Administration doing to ensure the safe evacuation of all American citizens and all eligible Afghan partners?
- How many Afghans are being evacuated to the United States and where are they going?
- What is the vetting process of Afghans being transported to the United States?
- Have any evacuees been flagged for possible ties to terrorism during security protocols?
- What will happen to American citizens and Afghan allies left in harm’s way on September 1, 2021?
“The current situation on the ground in Afghanistan was avoidable and predictable. It will impact the safety of Americans and military partnerships for decades to come,” DeSantis continued. “I have a responsibility to protect the safety of every Floridian and stress the imperative of an immediate response.”
The Biden administration has only given out vague details of how they plan to help get hundreds of trapped Americans out of Afghanistan.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during remarks to the nation that the effort would be a diplomatic one.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby tried to downplay the “hundreds” telling MSNBC that Americans “get stranded” in foreign countries “all the time.”
“More than 122,000 — including 4,500 Americans — have been evacuated from Afghanistan,” said Army Maj. Gen. Hank Taylor at a Pentagon briefing on Monday.
The Biden administrations clearly did not prioritize getting Americans out of Afghanistan.
It’s unclear what sort of paperwork the Biden administration was requiring in the middle of the chaos.
A small percentage of Afghan refugees are being flagged through biometric and background checks for possible ties to terrorism.
The Pentagon official said that 0.5% or more”of Afghan refugees have been flagged for questionable connections including ties to ISIS.
A man who was convicted of rape and deported from the U.S. was allowed to board an Afghan evacuation flight the Washington Times reported.
